Flyrock Blues

the flyrock blues got me down, got me down,
got me down, got me way down
people prayin' don't you land on me,
don't you bust my house, just let me be
on my own ground

well, they got the law and most of the land
but they ain't got us and where we stand
let 'em hear you
cause they're waitin' for you to change your tune
give up your claim and do it real soon
they wanna push you out, too

yeah, the people prayin' don't you land on me
from the hills of kentucky clear to tennessee
and that's a long way
and in west virginia the water's bad
and there just ain't no peace to be had
and that's the wrong way

maybe you're livin' far away
there's nothin' under your ground for them to take
from them to latch on to
but if they ever find the black rock there
you better beware or you'll know
the flyrock blues, too

the flyrock blues got me down, got me down,
got me down, got me way down
people prayin' don't you land on me,
don't you bust my house, just let me be
on my own ground
